Federal aid to offset local costs of ice storm clean up
Placeholder Image
President Barack Obama has allocated federal aid funding to assist Hall County and other regions affected by an ice storm in mid-February, which toppled trees and knocked out power to tens of thousands of residents. The storm, and subsequent cleanup, has been costly for local governments. The county’s road maintenance division reported that it had spent about $300,000 clearing streets of tree limbs and removing other storm debris by the end of March.
